Two weeks ago I had a crazy busy schedule! I needed to go to work, pick up my friend to bring her camping with me and my family, pack up and leave at 6am the next morning to take commemorative friendship photos, then attend a double birthday party for two of my closet pals! I packed up my belongings and headed out the door!
Before leaving town my boyfriend and I stopped at a candy store for a nutritious dinner of ice cream.
We were camping at Lake La-Aqua-Na State Park in Illinois. We arrived there safe and sound after taking a wrong turn and getting lost in a teeny tiny town called Orangeville.
The park was super gorgeous. Even though the lake was closed it was still pretty to look at!
Super awesome dock photo. Buzz really wanted to go swimming and kept trying to run over the edge, but we managed to catch him each time!
We walked all along the water's edge.
We found a shallow spot for Buzz to go wading in. He was a very happy dog!
While looking over the swimming rules for when the lake was open, we found ourselves very amused with rule number 4: All infants shall wear tight fitting rubber or plastic pants. Okaaaaaay :P
The sunset over the lake looked amazing.
Last objective on the agenda: making s'mores over the campfire! No fire is complete without s'mores!
The next morning we woke up at the crack of dawn to shower and get ourselves ready for friendship photos. We made it to our friend's house by 8am and made it to the photo location just in the nick of time at 9:30. Photos were taken for a couple hours. Afterwards we went and celebrated at Culver's. Following that we went swimming at the public pool then met at another friends for a double birthday party. There were games of Catchphrase, water pong (because we're too young to drink), movies, and s'mores, but one of the things that made me happiest was a treat another friend brought to the party:
It was a wonderful, experience-packed, and colorful weekend!
